Flip, we intentionally do not put out wind range charts because they are notoriously inaccurate. For example, I could tell you this kite is good from 6 knots (on a surf board, at 110lbs, very experienced kiter) to 30 knots (on a TT, at 250lbs, very experienced rider).

The kite performs beautifully in light winds, whatever you make those out to be. Further, it is a large kite for people who prefer large kites in light winds, whereas some - myself included - would prefer a surfboard or skim board and a 10m.

As always, the effective wind range of the kite depends on your weight, your ability, the board you are on, the water conditions and tide conditions… !

John,

The differences are obvious but consider a virtual kiteboarder, say… 80kg on twin tip 132 JT pro

with windrange created fot this virtual kiteboarder every rider could estimate his windrange.

For me windrange is a guideline not solid reference.

Here are the colour ways for the kite. Watch this thread for a full review on the kite from the Windy Devil guys who just took the kite out head to head with an Ozone 17m and loved it!

Now that’s one I’ll look forward to! Hopefully they perform as good as they look.

Mr wizard,
When can the people expect to see this kite?? I have my order in but there has been way to many days that I found myself wishing it was in my quiver.

We have confirmation that the 15ms will leave HK end of March for delivery to us in early April. If you have one on order for delivery from here it should arrive by around mid to late April. If you have one on order with one of our importers you might even see it sooner as our ex-factory shipments to our importers are usually sent about a week ahead of our own deliveries!

Evan should be posting here soon with some feedback, he and the Windy Devil crew have been using the 1x final sample version of the kite for about 2 weeks now.

So, the kite is here.
You test it?
So I wonder how is the kite going upwind, downwind.
Can you relaunch it in sub 10knt winds!
I believe that the kite is great and .... But before I bought it I need to know.

Some video of testing the 15 LW will be great too.

The good by OR is 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

And compared to Ozone 17 is ....

Cheers

Man, all this waiting for the perfect LW kite is killing me man!
I’ve been trying another brand and after 3 sessions I’ve decided this is not what I want, even though it is a very good kite.
Bar pressure is too high and the bar itself is just a round stick, its tough on my hands and forearms.
In gusty conditions the bar wriggles around as the wing tips adjust.
The smoothness of the venturi system is gone so there are surges in traction, doesn’t charge down the line as well… blah blah blah.
Lets hope that ship from HK has a swift and safe journey…c’mon 15 LW!!!

We haven’t received the first production run of these kites yet but we do expect them shortly - we’ll be turning them around and firing them out to our retailers ASAP. I recommend you contact your preferred shop to lock yours down as we’ve almost completely pre-sold the first batch of these!

Cheers,

Evan
